bayspt is right, if you have the capability you could use a router template and a bit with a bearing on top to follow the pattern.

Or use an angle grinder with a flexible sanding pad like these. They work great for shaped parts. You might want to practice a bit first though because they do remove stock in a hurry. Sand a bit on something else to dull the abrasive.

A good old fashioned spokeshave could help you shape it a little better too.
